There used to be Jack in the Boxes in Maryland, where I grew up. These tacos were my go to after a night of drinking. I have been using this clone for many years now, since they sold out to Taco Bell. I was so sad to see them leave the state, and SO HAPPY when Todd came out with this clone! It was what prompted me to buy my first TSR book, and now I have them all! BEST clone of the JitB!!! HIghly recommend ALL of Todd's books!

So the tacos were not on the original menu when Jack In The Box opened, and nor is it their own recipie. The tacos from Jack In The Box were origionally sold frozen in the grocery store back in the 1969's, they were sold under the brand name Roserita Brand, yes thats right, the same company that makes enchalada sauce, taco sauce etc,. They used to come frozen, and they came in 2 sizes, either a box of 6 that were regular size and 12 which were a box of 12 mini. There was absolutely no difference.
